I'm really heat and photosensitive so summer sun is a killer but last summer I found a fun combo that makes things livable - finally found a sunblock that my skin doesn't react horribly to, and I have this awesome body glitter that I dust on top for shimmery sparkling arms ala Twilight (except not mopey and stupid lol) Also I can't wait for sunshine so I can crack out the holographic nail polishes! Thanks and Cheers!
